Former Arsenal star Thierry Henry has left the door open for a possible return to the Gunners when he hangs up his boots.

The Frenchman left Arsenal on a permanent basis in 2007 to move to Barcelona, although he has since been back to the club in a playing capacity, enjoying a loan stint with his old side last year.

Currently the 35-year-old plays for New York Red Bulls in the MLS and is not planning on calling time on his career just yet.

But when he does, going back to Arsenal could certainly appeal.

Asked by Reuters about the possibility of going back to Arsenal, Henry replied: "All I know is that I will be involved in the game for sure and hopefully be involved with Arsenal because that is the heart talking there, that’s the team that I support. Forget about me as a player, that’s the team I support.


"In any type or shape, if I can go back to the club I would love to do it, but it’s not up to me. That would be a desire, more a desire than something that can be officialised, I still have two years playing here and then I will see.

"But I would definitely love to be back with Arsenal."

In the present, Henry is aiming to help New York Red Bulls to win the MLS Cup this season, after much disappointment over the last two years.

For the Frenchman, helping his club claim the title is a burning desire before he does eventually retire.
